WHAT IS IT?

A dark and futuristic comic about the last vestiges of humanity after a virus kills 99% of people on the planet.

Part character study and part technologically-forward tragedy, it feels like Black Mirror meets The Discovery, or a merging of the bleak future, ethical quandaries and questions about what defines personhood of Battlestar Galactica and the heartbreaking tone and survivor guilt of The Leftovers. Honestly, if you're a fan of any or all of these, this is a must-read comic for you.
